If you want to get out of the city and into a pumpkin patch, an alfresco end-of-summer/beginning of fall winemaker dinner will be hosted in Half Moon Bay, with Executive Chef Lewis Rossman of Cetrella cooking outdoors in Farmer John's "Pumpkin Patch" at Daylight Farms. This second generation farm, with three acres of dahlias, pumpkins, squash, herbs, and more, is nestled below the hills of historic Half Moon Bay. John has supplied flowers for every Presidential Inauguration for the past thirty years.
Dishes include Heirloom Tomatoes with Squash Blossoms, Genovese Basil and Imported Mozzarella di Bufala; Mesquite-Grilled Vermont Quail with Shaved Pumpkin; Garden Herb-Marinated Lamb Noisette with Assorted Grilled Zucchini and Sweet Peas; and Pumpkin Pannacotta with Fresh Mission Figs for dessert.
The Varner Brothers winemakers from the Varner Winery, as well as Kenny Likitprakong, winemaker and owner of Banyan Wines, will be joining the dinner as their outstanding wines are tasted throughout the meal.
Directions to the farm will be given once reservations are made.
